<p>by Ray Allen<\/p>The bad news is that the colorful fall leaves in Vermont are, well, late. We've been here over 20 years, and I always say the peak of color in the Burlington area is Columbus Day. Well, not this year. You have to really search to find one red leaf right now, and it's already October 10! However, here's the good news. The leaves have to change. The colors will come. They're just late. Which means our "leaf peeping" season will be extended at least until late October. Come on up and enjoy.
